UPLOADS First Key Issue Report: CAMPCRAFT

Everyone,

We are pleased to present our first Key Issue Report: Campcraft. Campcraft-related injuries, near misses and illnesses emerged within the UPLOADS first 12-month dataset as frequently occurring incidents with potentially severe outcomes. The aims of this report are:

  1. to present the findings from an analysis of the campcraft-related incident data contributed to the UPLOADS National Incident Dataset in the period between the 1st of June 2014 and 31st May 2015;
  2. to provide a holistic and in-depth understanding of the campcraft-related incidents; and
  3. to promote discussion within the sector regarding potential prevention strategies and countermeasures.

The UPLOADS project is a major collaboration between the Australian led outdoor activity sector, the University of the Sunshine Coast, and Federation University. The ultimate aim is to better understand and prevent incidents that occur during led outdoor activities.

We would like to acknowledge the sector’s critical role in producing the dataset described in this report. Without the continued involvement of the sector, it is not possible for UPLOADS to produce any meaningful analyses. We would like to thank our funding partners and also those who went above and beyond the call to contribute incident data to the UPLOADS Project. We greatly appreciate your support! We would also like to thank all those who provided feedback on the draft – your comments and suggestions were greatly appreciated. We have endeavored to address all of them.

If you have any questions about the campcraft report or would like to talk to the UPLOADS team, please do not hesitate to contact Amanda Clacy (aclacy@usc.edu.au), Paul Salmon (psalmon@usc.edu.au), or myself (mvanmulk@usc.edu.au).

Cheers!
